Today we lost a true legend of the drum...<br><br>Maestro de Maestros Patato Valdes<br><br>May he rest in peace..

Dear friends.

Today the day of Changó Carlos "Patato" Valdes a son
of Changó passed away at 10:10 PM.
One of the top percussionist in the World.
Armando Peraza once told me that when la Comparsa El
Cocuye came by the streets of Havana you could hear
the quinto 20 blocks away before any other instrument.
It was a small giant playing that quinto "Patato"
Today that quinto has silenced forever only to live in
our memories, our heart, and in that great legacy he
left behind.
I love you Patato and for me you will always be alive.
